Southwest Airlines continues to expand its international footprint with new routes to the Central American nation of Belize. Beginning on March 11, 2017, Southwest now operates a non-stop route between the Denver International Airport (DIA) and the Philip Goldson International Airport (BZE) in Belize City, Belize. The new Denver-Belize route will run until April 22, 2017.
Southwest Airlines currently operates a non-stop flight from Houston, Texas (HOU) to Belize City that began in 2015. Later this year, Southwest will add nonstop service to Belize from the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood (FLL) airport to cater to growing traveler numbers to Belize. The government of Belize has reported continuous growth in the number of overnight arrivals, and top airlines like Delta, United, American, and WestJet have begun operating new or boosted existing routes to Belize to accommodate increasing demand.
Belize is a small country in Central America located just south of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and can be reached by the United States in 2-7 hours. With a long Caribbean coastline, pristine interior consisting of rainforests, mountains, and jungles, and hundreds of offshore islands, Belize is rapidly becoming a top destination for celebrities, family vacationers, honeymooners, and adventure travelers.
